Weather can be unpredictable, especially here on Cape Cod.
Always check the weather before going out to the beach for the day.
What was predicted the night before will not always be the same as morning weather predictions.
Here are some tips and information for keeping safe while enjoying your vacation.
SEVERE WEATHER WATCHES VS. WARNINGS
Do you know the difference between a severe thunderstorm watch and a severe thunderstorm warning?
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means that the potential exists for the development of thunderstorms which may produce large hail or damaging winds. When a watch is issued, you should go about your normal activities, but keep an eye to the sky and an ear to the National Weather Service’s weather radio or local radio and television stations for further updates and possible warnings.
A Severe Thunderstorm Warning, on the other hand, means that a severe thunderstorm is occurring or is imminent based on doppler radar information. You should move indoors to a place of safety.
